Pilin' on the Vintage

This week at Pile It On our challenge theme is Vintage. We're sponsored by Rogue Redhead Designs, and they were incredibly generous & sent our PIO team their beautiful half-plate set Winter Women.

I've been a huge fan of RRD for several years; If I did more stamping, I'd own all their stamps! Seriously, they are well-made stamps and worth every penny. I especially enjoy their background stamps.

I wanted to use as much of the stamp set as I could, so I made a Card-in-a-box:

All of these stamps, including the shoe-pattern on the upper flaps and the sentiment on the back, are all from RRD's Winter Women set. It's difficult to see in this photo, but I stamped the shoe pattern in pink and blue on manila paper (same paper as the base card). The other off-white papers are a vine-patterned, pre-embossed DP. The patterned papers are from Graphic 45, included the paper used for the shoe stamp.

I edged all the pieces with Vintage Photo distress ink. I used brown ink to stamp all the images, and colored the lovely ladies with Copic markers. I added a touch of lace, but decided not to add any other embellishments & just let the stamps shine!
